Zaghloul [Phys. Plasmas 17, 062701 (2010)] reconsiders the occupation probability formalism in plasma thermodynamics and claims inconsistencies in previous models. I show that the origin of this incorrect claim is an omission of the configurational factor from the partition function.

    Potekhin [Phys. Plasmas 17, 124705 (2010)] claims that the inconsistencies in previous models of the well-known occupation probability formalism, which we have pointed out in Zaghloul [Phys. Plasmas 17, 062701 (2010)], are due to omission of the configurational factor from the partition function...

  • Weak Gibbs Measures for Intermittent Systems and Weakly Gibbsian States in Statistical Mechanics. Yuri, Michiko // Communications in Mathematical Physics;Oct2003, Vol. 241 Issue 2/3, p453 

    In this paper, we associate weak Gibbs measures for intermittent maps with non-Gibbsian weakly Gibbsian states in statistical mechanics in the sense of Dobrushin [4, 5]. We show a higher dimensional intermittent map of which the Sinai-Bowen-Ruelle measure is a weak Gibbs equilibrium state and a...

    Using literature data, experimental data obtained in this study, and a unified thermodynamic model, we have calculated the T-x-y phase diagrams of all the pseudoternary systems formed by the Group 14 chalcogenides: (Ge, Sn, Pb)Te, Pb(S, Se, Te), and Sn(S, Se, Te). The phase diagrams have been...

    Ionization potential (ionization energy) is a fundamental quantity characterizing electronic structure of a molecule. It is known that the energy in solution phase is significantly different from that in the gas phase. In this report, vertical and adiabatic ionization processes in aqueous...

    We apply the fluctuating cell model to the calculation of free energies and pressures of high density phases of two-dimensional hard dumbbells using the Metropolis algorithm to generate configurations in the NVT ensemble. The natural logarithm of the average free volume is found to yield a...

    In this paper we derived a form of the phase rule in non-extensive statistical system and clarified that the thermodynamic limit commonly used in extensive statistical mechanics was no longer applicable when the system has non-extensive properties, and also clarified the statistical distribution...

    It was found that the equivalence of the grand canonical and canonical ensembles for the Coulomb systems is possible only when charged particles of different types in calculating the physical quantities are considered as formally 'independent' ones, and the quasi-neutrality condition is used in...

    One-component systems with the simplest pair model interparticle interaction potentials are considered. The equations of state are obtained, and the relationship between the critical parameters of each system and the parameters of the interaction potentials is established. The lines of the phase...
